  • Pretty bush league...

    I'm sure Russell Wilson wants to be compared to a hobbit. I'm sure he's not tired of the short jokes, AT ALL.

  • They did a whole thing with the LotR story and NFL players, Russell Wilson was Bilbo, Pete was Gandalf the Gray, Flynn was Gollum....

    removed link since it was linked above.

    More about RW being "plucked out of relative obscurity to lead"

  • Only good part was the 49ers being the dark evil. Whatever they can say what they want. Wilson will keep proving the doubters wrong.

  • Some of you seem to complain that we don't get attention....well...we are getting it now.


    On a side note, I had to struggle through a 30 second Kay Jewelers commercial just to watch that crappy clip. That is life I will never get back.

  • RW would have agreed with it, I thought it was kinda funny. If they were putting RW down I would be upset but Bilbo is a hero so I am good with it.

    None of you guys getting your nickers in a knot obvioulsy understand a Hobbit or are LoTR or Hobbit fans, if you were you would actually see this is a huge compliment to RW.

    Hobbits are resourceful, brave, strong, smart. I love hobbits mind you I read the book the first time back in 1964 so probably see it in a much differnt light than you youngins.

    I play Lord of the Rings Online everyday. Hobbits are the BOMB. Especially as burglers. RW is a burgler stealing the confidence of the opposition on every play.

  • One thing to remember "attention hounds"....You've got to take the "good with the bad". However, it seems that I remember someone saying, "Any attention is good".

  • In his 10th year when he's being interviewed the tuesday leading up to SuperBowl LVI and being shown snippets from his previous six (6) SuperBowl championships, he can look back at all this Hobbitt crap and laugh.

    You're probably correct. However, my perspective might also be true.

  • Erm... In what way is this a diss on Wilson? Bilbo was a short person that nobody believed in, who ended up becoming a giant, suggesting that Wilson is mirroring that transformation. The video clearly shows Wilson on a quest for the Superbowl, and shows the 49ers as the dark powers. That's awesome - but then again I love LOTR, so I understood what the video was going after.

  • I don't understand when exactly 5'11" became "short". I'm 6'1" and I feel like I'm quite tall most places I go. I go to the store and can look over the top of most customers heads and keep track of my kids, and I'd apparently be a midget or something if I played in the NFL. I was bigger than most guys I played baseball with, and I was huge for a soccer player and was a striker that was always knocking everybody else around (much to my advantage). Russell is pretty good sized. He's taller than Mike Tyson. Let's hear somebody call him a Hobbit.

    I can remember some of the best players I ever saw and they weren't tall at all. I met Barry Sanders once and had my picture taken with him and got to talk to him. No way was he anything over 5'6". I didn't feel like a giant compared to him though. He was clearly a professional athlete. He was built like a truck, and 5'6" isn't all that short. I believe the average adult human was like 5'4" or 5'5" back when I was taking my college human development classes. It was supposed to increase to 5'7" I believe by 2020 or something like that, but there was thought it might go up faster because of changing eating patterns in third world countries (more protein, more exercise for physical health, and such).

    But even for an NFL player, why is 5'11" considered short? Ty Detmer was 5'11" and played in the NFL for like 15 years. I never heard any short jokes about him when he won the Heisman or played in the Pro Bowl (and yes... he did). Steve Young is not any taller than I am, I've stood next to him many times, and I'm only 2 inches taller than Russell. Put Young next to Montana on the sidelines and you'll notice in pictures that Young was taller than Montana. So is Russell Joe Montana height? He seemed to play fine and I never heard anybody commenting on his size. Maybe if Russell had just skipped the combine and said he was 6'1" nobody would have made such a big deal over his height week after week after week. He isn't Little Mac from Mike Tyson's Punch Out. Geez. He's basically a six foot tall full grown man. Michael Robinson played QB in college and was a very good QB and looked every bit the part of a QB and is about the same size. Mike Vick isn't the biggest guy. If anything, I'd say he has about the same build and presence on the field as Russell, yet Mike was the first pick in the draft. It just seems silly.
